Health Officer. The hire will be effective on Dec. 20 at a monthly salary of $6,633.00 per month plus $300.00 per month on-call pay from PHEP grant funds with two weeks vacation to be banked immediately upon hire. There will be an additional $1.00 per hour equivalent granted at the end of each of the first and second years of employment with satisfactory performance.
